  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Olive style Naim casing...

    I am now the proud owner of an Avondale stage3 NAP250.

    However, it's currently in a chrome bumper case, which doesn't match the rest of my kit. - I'm currently trying to track down an olive full width case.

    My question is to whether all full width NAP's are the same size, & also whether the internals from a 250 would fit? e.g. could I buy a cheap, possibly knackered 90.3 & use the case?

    Is it as simple as drilling a few holes in the base?

    Yes all full width full height olive cases are the same physical size, but they don't all have the same holes drilled in the bottom.

    The 250 has more holes than any other piece of equipment and most of them are crucial since they create the good thermal link to the heatsink.

    hence if you transplant a case from any other kit you'll need to do a lot of drilling.

    Also why bother since the actual case metalwork is identical abart from the chrome bumper and olive fascia

    You could just as easily turn your existing case round and dril a new set of holes, or send it off to Les to get it re finished in all over black.

    You then still need to get the olive fascia, switch and illuminated logo.

    Just be careful that you get a full height case, like colasblue says. A 180/135/250 would do, but not a 90.3 - it's not as tall, being the same height as a cd3/cd3.5 etc.
